Chelsea FC transfer news: Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini set to end Blues speculation by signing new Juventus deal
Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini
Giorgio Chiellini is set to end all speculation linking him with Chelsea by finally penning a new deal with Juventus.
The experienced defender has been extensively linked with a move to Stamford Bridge, where he would link up with his compatriot Antonio Conte.
Chiellini's current deal at Juve expires in the summer and it was suggested Chelsea could land him during the January transfer window on a cut-price deal.
Failing that, the 33-year-old could arrive at Stamford Bridge as a free agent in the summer and pocket a healthy signing-on fee.
But now, according to the Gazzetta dello Sport, the Italian is going nowhere and is on the verge of agreeing a new one-year deal in Turin.
Chiellini has played 16 times in Serie A already this season, highlighting his continued importance to the club.
